After spending six weeks in Canada for the festive season, the couple stepped out to visit Canada House in London to thank the Canadian High Commissioner for the warm hospitality they received during their break.

After nearly two months away from royal work, Meghan made a grand sartorial return in a camel coloured coat from Reiss (which has already sold out) and a modern satin midi skirt.

Satin midi skirts became a must-have item in 2019. Feminine, yet cool, the item can be worn many ways for day or night, making it a go-to in many women’s wardrobes.

In fact, ASOS recently revealed that it sold over 120,000 satin bias-cut skirts in 2019. The styles were in all sizes and ranges, including Maternity, Curve, Tall and Petite.

Meghan’s chic coffee coloured skirt was £85 from Spanish brand, Massimo Dutti.

However, for those looking to purchase the duchess’ first ensemble of the year on a budget you can buy a very similar Satin Bias Cut Midi Skirt from Warehouse for only £15.

Meghan kept her outfit tonal, pairing the skirt with a coordinating toffee coloured polo neck jumper.

The 38-year-old also accessorised the look with a pair of velvet Jimmy Choo’s, which she’s sported numerous times before, as well as a dainty gold bracelet.
